[RC] children's riding s tuff - Melissa

Hi Chris
My 11yr old rides his horse with me. The helmet is grudgingly worn with alot of grumbling - but he REFUSES to wear riding pants (he calls them girlie tights). We compromised- he wears sweat pants or wind/nylon workout pants (no inside seams). Even THAT was battle. They sell them at Wal-Mart. Good luck!  Hey, any input from male endurance riders out there to give us some helpful hints to give to our "macho- concerned with image") sons would be GGGGRRRRReatly appreciated.
thanks in advance, 
Melissa/ MN

My 8Yo grandson is thinking he wants to start doing
some distance riding with me. He's got a nice horse,
saddle that fits him and the horse, but I need to get
him out of his jeans and into some riding britches...

anybody got boys who ride? What kind of pants do they
ride in? Anything particularly "cool" for a boy this
age?? he doesn't object to wearing a helmet, but I'm
not sure if I can  push it as far as riding tights,

Arabians were bred for years primarily as a war horse and those
requirements are similar to what we do today with endurance riding.
